Meditation 101: An Evening of Guided Meditations

Instructor:  Anne Reith, Ph.D.

Do you struggle with meditating? Or would you like to improve your meditative practice?

Anne’s first attempt at meditation was when she was in her teens.  Even back then, she intuitively knew that meditating was important. She took classes in Transcendental Meditation, and she tried so hard to make it work for her.  Unfortunately, she ended up being a “meditation drop-out.”

Over the years, Dr. Anne tried numerous times to learn how to meditate.  She just could not figure out how to make it work for her.

When Anne entered the metaphysical field in 2002, she began to learn even more about meditation, which is when things “clicked.”  She learned that even the “best” meditators will admit that their their minds wander.  She also found a teacher who explained that “the healing is in the return” to your focus.  Exploring all the different forms of meditation, including silent sitting, walking meditations, and guided meditations, was also helpful.

Dr. Anne now firmly believes that there are “tricks” to becoming an effective meditator, such as having realistic expectations and finding a meditation practice that matches who you are.  But that’s not all.  You then have to allow your meditation practice to evolve as you evolve.
